BATON ROUGE - East Baton Rouge Parish Recreation and Park commissioners have agreed to ask voters on April 5 to renew 6.2 mills in property taxes used to pay for capital improvements and general operating expenses.

On Wednesday, commissioners voted 7-0 without discussion in favor of having the tax renewal on the April ballot.

Voters will have one proposition that contains two tax renewals.

One is a 4.1 mill tax, split between capital improvements and operations and maintenance.

The other, a 2.1 mill tax, goes strictly to operations and maintenance.

The two combined are expected to generate almost $22.9 million in revenue for BREC.
